Com satisfação divulgamos o lançamento do livro “Kant and the Problem of Politics” (2022), organizado por Alessandro Pinzani (UFSC) em parceira com Luigi Caranti (UniCt), e publicado pela editora Routledge. A série “Rethinking the Contemporary World” é composta por três volumes que discutem a atualidade da filosofia kantiana no campo da epistemologia, da filosofia moral e da política.

“This book examines the significance of Kant’s political philosophy in the context of contemporary philosophical and political debates. In the last few decades, Kantian specialists have increasingly manifested a purely exegetic and philological interest in Kant’s oeuvre, while contemporary philosophers and scientists tend to use Kant with scant hermeneutical care, thus misrepresenting or misunderstanding his positions. This volume countervails these tendencies by focusing more on specific themes of contemporary relevance in Kant’s writings. It looks to Kant’s political thought for insight on tackling issues such as freedom of speech, democracy and populism, intergenerational justice, economic inequality, money, poverty, international justice and gender/feminism. Featuring readings by well-known Kant specialists and emerging scholars with unorthodox approaches to Kant’s philosophy, the volume fills a significant gap in the existing scholarship on the philosopher and his works. It will be of great interest to scholars and researchers of philosophy, politics and ethics.”
